    Enjoy your trip, midges were pretty bad week before last almost anywhere when the wind dropped, we were fairly well blessed with a decent breeze most days (y)

    Looking forward to site / stop over details

    I had a photographic exhibition staged at this gallery in Clachan of Campsie in 1989. It was to help commemorate the Forth & Clyde Canals Bi-Centenary and the start of £66Million project to reopen the canal to boat traffic. (y) I've spent many happy days in Campsie Glen and in the Fells above it. Happy days. Thanks for posting:)
